Guided Tour of the Elizabeth City Cemetery

Before evening falls and the Fright at the Fort begins, join Fort staff on a guided walking tour through the Elizabeth City Cemetery. You'll visit all the graves of those who helped to defend the Fort, as well as other notable figures including Civil War veterans, politicians, and more.

Visitors will also learn how to "read" a headstone, decipher common iconography, how to safely "take a stone home," and basic techniques of headstone preservation.

A special note on parking—please park carefully along S. Apple River Road or on the paved roads in the cemetery! DO NOT park or drive on the grass inside the cemetery or you risk destroying graves and their markers!
